just arrived: phone pics

I've arrived. My journey was long and stressful at times but I made it. So far I have been in the city for two days. It is a big city with lots of beautiful architecture. Things have been very busy here. Lots to do and take care of when you move to a new country. I am very glad that we got my cell phone on the first day. It is my first smartphone, I love it already. Here are a few shots I've taken so far. I promise more sophisticated photography in my next post. I really want to show you the beautiful buildings around town.

Couldn't leave the states without my trusty collapsible hand basket. This grocery store is a couple of blocks from the apartment.

Silly me taking pictures of beer in the market. They are 2 liters- HUGE. I couldn't believe it.
American Fail. Got a happy meal tonight. Goal is to limit any kind of Western food to once a month.
First day in the city I walked by this sign posted on the door of a clothing shop. "Why does it say USA?" I asked Cata. He laughed at me, "It says please close the door" USA=Door in Romanian :)

You have a point there :)

My story:

Girl meets boy.
Love strikes.
Boy moves to Romania,
girl (now engaged) follows suit.

I'll be living abroad for the first time in my life beginning January 11th 2011. Follow this blog if you want to see my adventures.
